Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • A child’s welfare is the court’s primary, paramount, and controlling consideration in all controversies between parents over the custody of their minor children. This general rule, however, is subject to the exception that a fit parent with a suitable home has a right to the custody of his child superior to the rights of others, in which case the law presumes that the child’s best interests will be served when in the custody of its parent. Moreover, the opposing party has the burden of showing circumstances which would justify depriving a parent of the custody of his child, and proof of either voluntary relinquishment of the right to custody or unfitness of the parent must be clear, cogent, and convincing.
